    part of me is skeptical that this is real. only because of the email title:
    Windows Usability Systematic degradation flame

    sounds fine until the last word. but thats as far is i read really. :p

    Read to the bottom of the article, where Gates admits to having written it.

    im sure SJ wrote this type of ranting email to OS classic OSX developers as well.

    I think its a very good thing, even if they tried to hide it from us public, I sure hope its going on behind the door.

    Gates is known to have been unhappy about the development of XP which resulted in the release of SP2 in August 2004. After that XP became the world's most popular OS and Gates much happier with it.
